About Medford
Medford Massachusetts was settled in 1695 and became a city in 1892. The economic history was based on the ship building trade in colonial times. Ship building was begun by Thatcher Magoun who used lumber harvested from the Fells and New Hampshire which arrived via the Middlesex Canal.

After the ship building industry reached its decline printed cloth and carpets, linseed oil as well as rum and hats became the major products in Medford as did education with the founding of Tufts University in 1852. Because of its industrial prosperity Medford doubled its population every 20 years from 1870 to 1910.

To this day Medford is a well populated city in a very convenient location filled with many suburban neighborhoods. However it still retains a rich architectural heritage containing many historic sites which include monuments and houses-some of which date back the 17th century.

Global Citizens Model United Nations Experience (MiniMUN III) for 5th and 6th graders

MiniMUN III is a chance for fifth and sixth graders to have a Model United Nations experience in order to get a taste of what Model United Nations is all about.牋 Students are provided with a guide to the topic which will be discussed/debated, and with a country position statement that explains their country's position on said topic and the reasons for those positions, as well as what solutions their country would be likely to support or to oppose. At the beginning of the conference, students will be given a brief introduction to the United Nations, and then during the afternoon they will be helped to learn the proces of debate, the rules of Model UN Debate, how to present themselves in debate, how to negotiate and work together, and how to write working papers and resolutions. Opening Ceremonies will be centered around the participants and will be engaging and motivating for them, and Closing Ceremonies will center around a celebration of what they have done during the afternoon.

We are asking for a $30 registration fee to cover our costs (printing, nametags, paper, pens, printer ink, folders, snacks for during the conference, and so forth). However, anyone who would not be able to participate because this fee imposes a burden need simply send us an email and we will register them directly -- no questions asked, it is an honor system for financial aid. If you can pay part of the fee, send us an email to register and tell us what you can pay, and then send us a check for what you can afford to contribute. Schools, church groups, after school programs, and other community groups should contact us regarding alternative pricing and payment options. Additionally, while it is fine to register and pay via Eventbrite we don't receive those funds til after the conference, so we would be even happier to receive an email registration followed by a mailed check; checks can be mailed to ARMUN, c/o Kim Kay Holt, 2 Orchard Place #2, Arlington, MA 02476. If you register via eventbrite or if you want to register by email, please email us with your student's name, grade, school (or status as homeschooled), and your email and phone number in case we need to reach you. The email to use for all MiniMUN related issues is

Thank you and see you at MiniMUN III in November!

If you are wondering what comes after MiniMUN for your student, here are some possibilities: A number of schools already have middle school (6th - 8th grade) Model UN clubs where your student could get involved. If your school doesn't have a club but you can get them interested in starting one, ARMUN is happy to provide assistance to anyone starting a club, and the United Nations Association of Greater Boston also provides technical assistance and professional development to schools starting clubs. Additionally, schools can access the UNICEF USA Global Classroooms curriculum for use in a variety of in-class settings, as well as curriculums from Facing the Future which are carefully designed to meet standards in a number of different subject areas (UNICEF's curriculums are free, Facing the Future's must be purchased -- both are outstanding). ARMUN has an independent club for 5th - 8th Graders, the Middle School Model UN & Civic Engagement Club, which is open to all area students of that age without regard to what school they attend or homeschool status. If you are interested in more information about that, simply email us. We also maintain a list of 5th - 8th graders who can't regularly participate in our club but who want to be alerted when we are having in-club debates, doing major events including service projects or going to outside group's events, and so forth, and we are happy to place student's who have been at MiniMUN on this list.牋 Finally, if your student is a fifth grader, they can come to MiniMUN again next year! And when they reach high school, most area high schools, as of this year that includes Arlington High School, offer Model UN and there is also the option of ARMUN's independent high school club. Thanks. Hope that answers some of your questions in advance. Feel free to email with further questions or for more information.

2014 Eco-Rep Symposium & Eco-Rep CBSM Workshop

The 2014 Eco-Rep Symposium is fast approaching!

The Symposium is FULL. Please add yourself to the waitlist and keep the date open. We will contact you as soon as a spot opens up.

The CBSM Workshop has a few spaces left - however, only students who are participating on Saturday may go to this event.

The Eco-Rep Symposium at Tufts University in Medford, Mass. is designed for:

  • Student or staff members involved with an Eco-Rep (or similar) program at a college or university.
  • People not a part of an established Eco-Rep program but who would like to learn more about these peer-to-peer sustainability engagement and education programs across the Northeast.
  • People who are interested in learning about topics such as effective dorm engagement, behavior change tools, composting, improving campus partnerships, and more!

The 2014 Eco-Rep Symposium at Tufts University will bring together the region抯 most passionate student leaders for sustainability. Students will have the opportunity to share insights from their campus experiences and build networks they will be able to tap into for future sustainable ventures.

The main portion of the symposium will take place on Saturday, November 15th with registration beginning at 11am and activities ending at 5pm. Tickets are $15 for students and faculty/staff. Since there is limited space for the symposium, we will be capping registration at 10 people per university.*

The following day, Doug McKenzie-Mohr will offer a special Introduction to Community-Based Social Marketing (CBSM) for students (sorry, no faculty/staff).He is providing this special opportunity just for students who attended the symposium on Saturday for the very low price of $15 per person. We can arrange dorm housing (e.g. a spot on the floor) for students who stay Saturday night. Staff and Faculty are encouraged to register for his Introductory and Advanced CBSM workshops taking place during the following week also here at Tufts and may not participate in the Sunday workshop. For more information and to register visit his website.

If there is interest, we will organize professional development activities for staff members on Sunday while their students are in the workshop (e.g. trip to the aquarium with your fellow sustainability officers!). Activity costs for Sunday's staff event are not included in the registration.

We are looking for people to present at the symposium, find out more here!

For more information visit the symposium website or e-mail with questions.

We hope to see you at the symposium!

Biodiversity for a Livable Climate: Restoring Ecosystems to Reverse Global Warming

Schedule: Friday, 6-9 p.m. - Saturday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. - Sunday, 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Promoting the power of nature to remove excess carbon from the atmosphere where it does untold damage, and restore it to the soils where it supports abundant life and reverses global warming.

We are telling a new story. 燛ach of our speakers presents a chapter in the remarkable narrative of life on earth in the 21st century. 燱e humans are a key part of that narrative, and while there are many parts they all come together in a single tale. 燱e will weave those parts together so that each presentation is part of the whole, a whole that builds a different and more hopeful worldview than we抳e heard in a long time. 燱e have a lot of work to do and heavy paradigms to shift, but we can and will tell the new story with exciting and hopeful outcomes.

Our Boston conference has a roster of expert speakers followed by an international series of events bringing together climate advocates, farmers, ranchers, scientists, social scientists, policymakers, NGOs, artists, visionaries and the general public in other words, any and all of us for a non-technical discussion to consider:

  1. The exceptional potential of the biosphere to address all of our current emissions, as well as to remove the 125 parts per million of excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
  2. Effective action on a global scale by applying eco-regenerative approaches to lands and waters worldwide.
  3. The use of biological systems to re-establish healthy water cycles to cool the earth抯 surface.

Our primary urgent goal in the face of widespread breakdown in addressing climate change is to further the understanding necessary to embark on the global regeneration process made possible by enabling the forces of biology. Collectively we will present affordable strategies for eco-restoration that local, national and international governments, agencies, communities and individuals may rapidly implement in order to reverse global warming.
